From Coupons to Cuisine – Episode 4


Welcome to our next installment of From Coupons to Cuisine – a joint endeavor with my husband, Gary.  Gary is the cook in our family and has a blog, A Real Dad Makes Real Food, that features his recipes.  I thought it would be fun to use my couponing skills with his cooking prowess and create recipes using the weekly sales at ShopRite. (My grocery store of choice!)


This week, ShopRite has chicken breast and ground Butterball turkey on sale for $1.99 lb (and there’s a coupon!).  Because both are on sale, we have two recipes for you this week.

The first recipe is called Chicken a la Steven and is a really quick and easy one.  In addition to the chicken being on sale, several of the recipe’s ingredients are on sale as well:

  • Boneless chicken breast 1.99 lb STOCK UP PRICE
  • SR baby Bella mushrooms 1.99
  • Red Pack tomatoes .88 STOCK UP PRICE
  • Pride of Thailand jasmine rice 2 lbs 1.99 (To serve with the chicken)
  • Dole salad blends 2.00 (for your veggie)

This recipe happens to be one of our son’s favorites (hence the name) and is really good heated up as leftovers/lunches.

The second recipe, Lettuce Wraps, utilizes the ground Butterball turkey on sale this week. Not only are these absolutely delicious, they are low carb.  Instead of wrapping the filling into a tortilla, you use Boston lettuce (also called Bibb lettuce).  Although not as many of the other ingredients are included in this week’s sale, you might want to buy the ground turkey for the freezer and remember this recipe for a later date.

Please let us know how you liked these recipes.  We’re always looking for feedback!
